After 8 months of training, they completed the 13 mile route in a respectable 2 hours 41 minutes and were placed 1620 and 1621 out of over 2000 competitors. Through their efforts Julie and Joni have exceeded their fundraising target and have managed to raise over £500 for the College’s charity of the year, Rowcroft Hospice. Julie said “I am pleased to have completed the Half Marathon within the anticipated time … now I can go and eat chocolate! It is great that we have managed to raise so much money for a very worthy cause.” Joni reiterated Julie’s sentiment regarding the fundraising and said “It was a really hot day and hard work but I am so pleased that we completed.” They would both like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their sponsorship and support.
